Just venting! The first day of school is on Wednesday 8/25(teachers started today 8/23). We have a PreK - 6th grade school with about 450 kids total. Today alone over 15 kids registered for school ( in various grade levels) and the secretary said over 30 kids registered for school last week. I'm sure a few more will register tomorrow. This is not new. It happens every year! We also probably have kids on our rosters that won't show up on the first day because they moved and didn't tell us. It drives me crazy. Why can't parents get their act together. Its like "Oh my child is 5 years old and school starts tomorrow. Maybe we better go sign him up for kindergarten!" I wish parents realized how much work is involved in setting up a classroom and how nice it would be to have more than a days notice that they are coming. Does this happen everywhere or is just the irresponsible parents in my school district.
